as you make up your mind, remember -- congressman heck voted 10 times to defund planned parenthood. heck took all that money from wall street and predatory payday lenders and voted their way. he even wanted to privatize social security, risking it on the stock market. congressman heck just doesn't care about people like us. dscc is responsible for the content of this advertising. i'm catherine cortez masto.

we can't just sit on the sidelines when so much needs to be done. i know that, working together, we can make progress. as attorney general, i brought democrats and republicans together to fight sex trafficking and drug dealers. and i took on the big banks who took advantage of nevada homeowners. i approve this message because in washington,

in 2007. and no city in america suffered more than las vegas. wall street banks were slammed with huge fines for their role in creating the financial meltdown, but none of the big players went to prison. so, would bankers do it again if they could? george knapp of the i-team looks at banks behaving badly. (( ) ) for 30 straight years, rivers of money flowed in las vegas, fueled by bat-out-of-hell growth rte mother of all housing bubbles. nevada was tailor-made for the frankenstein-like financial products invented by wall street banks. sub-prime loans meant more people could buy houses, and that meant more money for so-called banksters. heather murren: people should have gone to prison.... philanthropist and former wall street analyst heather murren spent 18 months working on the commission which investigated the financial meltdown. banks were allowed to create the risky instruments that were used to defraud millions of
6:45 pm
evidence of crimes. heather murren: we handed folders over to the department of justice that said these things we believe that people did were illegal...but no one has actually gone to jail. the big banks knew they were selling fraudulent securities, but did it anyway. in nevada, as elsewhere, they created robosigning factories...like a fast food line for made-up mortgage documents. homeowners eventually discovered after all...including this reporter. gknapp: you told me my mortage was bad. tisha black: that's amazing. attorney tisha black helped write regulations that shut down the robosigners here. nevada authorities tried to go after the banks on criminal charges, but states had to back off when federal authorities brokered a settlement. wall street agreed to billions in fines, but none of the big bankers were
6:46 pm
for wall street, that is the moral of the story. tisha black: it's the morality. there is no morality. they don't answer to anybody, really. they might get hauled in front of congress for an embarrassing three hour session and they're done. a lot of people would deal with that for a 30 million dollar paycheck. after paying the huge fines for the meltdown, some bank presidents were given fat raises. altogether, big banks have paid financial collapse, for fraud, for money laundering, for other criminal schemes, but the fines are often paid by banks insurance companies, and they're tax deductible, a cost of doing business. wells fargo, the largest bank in nevada, was recently caught red-handed creating millions of unauthorized credit card accounts. bank executives know the benefits outweigh the risks. tisha: it's the carrot and the stick. the carrot is huge and the stick is small. heather:
6:47 pm
the culture of the banks and i think what we're seeeing with wells fargo is very symptomatic of the fact that if nobody gets in trouble for anything at a high level, then ultimately people's behaviors don;t change. murren thinks new regulations will make it harder for wall street banks to create as big a mess as the last time but warns there are shadow banking systems in play that are not being scrutinized. if we can't put bankers in prison, the public can at least send a message. illinois and california decided doing business with their states. nevada's treasurer announced that no such action would be taken here. murren: i was surprised. i think that treasurers have an obligation to all of their constituents and granted that wells fargo is the largest bank in nevada but nonetheless, they behaved poorly and we should be making sure we're protecting the people that have accounts there, whether they're teachers or veterans or folks that don't have a lot of money. george knapp 8 news now.
